Ards withdraw from Irish Cup

Ards Football Club has taken the difficult decision to pull out of this season’s Peaky Blinders Irish Cup.

Club chairman Warren Patton said: “As a club with a rich history of success in the Irish Cup this is not a decision we have taken lightly.

“However, we felt it was the best decision for our club and our players. Throughout the 2020/21 season we have prioritised the safety of our players and coaching staff. It made little sense to ask our players to return to training for potentially just one fixture, particularly with no guarantees of a Covid testing regime.

“We would like to thank our fans for their patience. Hopefully, we will be reunited for the 2021/22 season.”
